I just tried my laptop, and there ping.exe is found without problems. 
They have similar package selection, but not identical (I can post its 
cygcheck.out if you want). One thing I did on my main machine was 
running setup.exe while bash was running (careless, I know) and it 
downloaded and installed a new rebase. It didn't say anything about 
in-use files being replaced but I have rebooted my main machine anyway. 
Don't know if that messed anything up anyway?
